I'm Lisa, by the way.

Hey, Lisa By The Way.

Good luck at your next job.

Hold the door, please.

They're keeping me on

for a few more days...

...so I might see you on Monday.


Your turn.

No, I think it's your turn!

Don't even try it.

It's definitely your turn.

Looks like I'm stuck, huh?

Huh, Kyle?

Come here.

Oh, my God.

What is your mom feeding you?

What do you think about giving

that magic mirror another test drive?

Sharon, you're so bad.

Like that's not why you married me.

- Morning, Marge.

- Morning, Derek.


Remember me?

Lisa By The Way, right?

Very good, I'm impressed.

Hey, Marge, where's Patrick?

Out with the flu.

I did some trading

with the other temps...

...and I wrangled your desk.

I hope that's okay.

No, that's fine. Why don't you

grab a pad and a pen, follow me?

Here's a memo

for the Christmas party this Friday.

- Is it that time already?

- Yeah.

Sit down.

So why don't they invite spouses?


To the party. It says no spouses.

Yeah, it's Joe Gage's rule. Actually,

it's like that at a lot of companies.

I guess they figure you're not gonna

kick back and let loose...

...if your spouse is there.

The reason of having the party, right?

- So does this party get pretty wild?

- Oh, not usually.

Well, that's no fun.

I called Patrick. He said that

you like it black with two sugars.

If it's cold, I can go nuke it

in the kitchen.

No, actually, it's perfect. Thank you

very much. Let's get started.

- Ready when you are.

- It's Monday.

- First things first.

- Took care of that.

Took care of what?

On Mondays

you always send your wife flowers.

This week you sent her

a dozen long-stemmed red roses.

I called to confirm

they've been delivered.

Thank you.

So how long have you two

been married?

Three years in March.
